As so often... it depends on your needs!
I can talk about the same processor in a MacBook Air, but with 16GB RAM. Processing power is awesome! With 8GB you'll probably get problems when using e.g. Davinci Resolve (it works also with 8GB, but in the specs they write 16GB 8GB is minimum - so don't expect too much here!).
Perfectly running on M1: Final Cut Pro X and MLVApp. If you can live with that, M1 is perfect

Discussion about MLVApp on M1 started here:
